Perception presents classic essays on the conceptual and theoretical problems in the study of vision. In a style that is accessible to the non-expert, the volume lays out core issues in the theory of vision and then sets up a dialogue on the topics among philosophers and psychologists, past and present. Perception provides the historical background on the important debates in this field, considers alternative accounts of the basis for the individuation of the senses, explores the controversy over whether perception is direct or indirect, and examines the difficulties and complexities of drawing a principled distinction between perception and conception. This collection will interest anyone who seeks a deeper understanding of the complex problems of perception. It will also appeal to scholars in search of a compact collection of some of the best expository writing in this area.

Recensioner i media

"Perception is an outstanding introduction to the conceptual and theoretical problems of visual perception. Robert Schwartz has integrated a well-balanced collection of clear and thought-provoking writings from influential philosophers and psychologists, extending from Aristotle to the present. Perception is essential reading for students of the philosophy and psychology of visual perception." Donald D. Hoffman, University of California, Irvine "This anthology is unique in combining substantial readings in the psychology and philosophy of visual perception. Through judicious selection, it surveys the historical background from Aristotle to Koffka, then represents in depth the variety of contemporary issues and positions. It will serve as a strong backbone for courses in philosophy of perception or visual studies." Gary Hatfield, University of Pennsylvania
